A child is telling their parents to let them go because they're old enough.
I wrote this when I realised that I had grown independent and that my mother was missing me already.

School’s finally over and we’re on our way
To the road. We’re leaving today!
And my friends on my left, my car on my right.
We’re driving off through the night.

We’re starting our way from the top,
Making our way down!
Starting from the tip of the ice
And ending at the berg!

So just let me go.
I won’t ever be tied down.
I have to go.
So just let me go.
The world’s just waiting, sitting there,
And I’m dying to see…
So just let me go.

Australia’s gonna be the first to see me.
Europe will set me free.
Asia and Africa will follow soon after,
And then back home to see them!

We’re starting our way from the top,
Making our way down!
Starting from the tip of the ice
And ending at the berg!

So just let me go.
I won’t ever be tied down.
I have to go.
So just let me go.
The world’s just waiting, sitting there,
And I’m dying to see…
So just let me go.

Just let me go.
Just let me go.
You know you should.
So just let me go!

We’re starting our way from the top,
Making our way down!
Starting from the tip of the ice
And ending at the berg!

So just let me go.
I won’t ever be tied down.
I have to go.
So just let me go.
The world’s just waiting, sitting there,
And I’m dying to see…
So just let me go.

So just let me go.
I won’t ever be tied down.
I have to go.
So just let me go.
The world’s just waiting, sitting there,
And I’m dying to see…
So just let me go.
